|8th World Championships in Para-Ski 2001
March 13-18, 2001
In January 2000, at the 51st General Meeting of the FAI/IPC in Canberra, Australia, the
German Aero Club, together with the German Parachute Association, were elected to host the Eighth World Championships in Para-Ski 2001.
IPC and the hosts are looking forward to welcoming teams from all FAI/IPC member countries at the Para-Ski World Championship 2001 in the Municipality of Mittelberg, Kleinwalsertal, Austria. Mittelberg is located 120 km southwest of Munich and 100 km northwest of Innsbruck.
Aircraft for the event will be Helicopter, Bell 407 or Lama. The competition activities will take place near the station of the Kanzelwand cable car in the center of Riezlern (Accuracy target area). The ski races will take place at the top station of Kanzelwand. The qualification run and the giant slaloms will be carried out on the same course. Transportation to and from the hotels in Riezlern and to the competition venue is not necessary because all sites are very close together and are within walking distance.
The OC requests from all competitors a valid FAI Sporting License 2001 and a valid parachuting license. Each participating country should also bring a national flag (size: 100 cm x 150 cm) and a tape with the national anthem. The Organizing Committee will do their best to host and organize a first-class Para-Ski World Championship, and will follow all official FAI/IPC rules and regulations.
